Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0151636

NCI Thesaurus Code: C62256  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Pathologic Function

NCIt Definition: An electrocardiographic finding of an ectopic impulse originating in the ventricles. The QRS morphology of these complexes is different from those of supraventricular origin. The QRS duration is often longer and the RR interval preceding the complexes is usually shorter than that of supraventricular beats. (CDISC)

HPO Definition: Premature ventricular contractions (PVC) or ventricular extrasystoles are premature contractions of the heart that arise in response to an impulse in the ventricles rather than the normal impulse from the sinoatrial (SA) node. [HPO:curators]

CDISC Definition: An electrocardiographic finding of an ectopic impulse originating in the ventricles. The QRS morphology of these complexes is different from those of supraventricular origin. The QRS duration is often longer and the RR interval preceding the complexes is usually shorter than that of supraventricular beats; there may be one or more occurrences during an electrocardiographic recording.

CSP Definition: premature ventricular beats, the most common of all arrhythmias; in the absence of heart disease, they are not of great clinical significance, but in patients with coronary disease, they represent a constant danger of ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation and sudden death.

MSH Definition: A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.
